Jeff Andrews has been appointed business development director for White Clarke Group with effect from May 2016.

He will be focusing on managing and building the company’s expanding operations in the Asia Pacific region.

“This is a great time for Jeff to join the White Clarke Group team” said Brendan Gleeson, group executive vice president. “Demand for auto finance in China and Asia Pacific has never been higher, with increasing numbers of next-generation car buyers showing an appetite for car finance in preference to buying using personal savings.”

He added: “With Jeff’s appointment, White Clarke Group (WCG) is more than ready to meet the needs of both its global clients and new client acquisitions in the region that need comprehensive agile and robust end-to-end systems in place – and which can effectively handle the high volumes of new business they are experiencing.”

Jeff Andrews joins WCG from NetSol Technologies during which time he focused on the Asian auto and captive finance market. In addition to an in-depth understanding of the region, Andrews is also experienced at managing rapid-growth technology business – most notably at WIPRO – where he spearheaded the organization’s rapid expansion in Europe of IT outsourcing, and increased revenues from $7 million revenue to over $200 million in just five years.

Andrews has also worked for a number of Indian and American technology and business processing outsourcing operations.

WCG is a global first-class provider in end-to-end automotive and asset finance software solutions and consulting services. It is a global organization employing around 600 professionals, with offices in the UK, China, US, Canada, Australia, Austria and Germany. Clients include: GM Financial, Toyota Financial Services, Volkswagen Financial Services, Daimler Financial Services, Ford Credit, BMW Financial Services and FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles).

In May 2016, the company won two awards for innovation in motor finance technology at the International Auto Finance Network Conference in London, and also made the news in China where the company was one of the first auto finance technology providers to successfully transition all of its clients’ systems to full compliance with China’s new VAT arrangements.
